You still can’t buy a OnePlus 8 Pro, and that makes it hard to recommend
The best phone is the one you can actually buy and have right now.
We published our OnePlus 8 Pro review well over a month ago, on April 29. And since then, it’s been incredibly hard to buy one. The OnePlus 8 Pro has been out of stock on its own website for weeks, and the Amazon listing has fluctuated between coming soon, vague ship dates, and now no availability at all. And this lack of consistent availability makes it really hard to recommend the OnePlus 8 Pro — sure, it’s a great phone, but how great is it if you can’t actually buy one when you want (or need) a new phone?
